Sky Watch Friday!

There may be peace without joy, and joy without peace, but the two combined make happiness
        John Buchan


Joy is the feeling of grinning inside.
         Melba Colgrove

There are those who give with joy, and that joy is their reward.
  Kahlil Gibran
Let a joy keep you. Reach out your hands and take it when it runs by.
        Carl Sandburg
Time to share your skies, the beauty over your world, the clouds, the colors! Sky Watch is hosted each week by  the Sky Watch team of  Sandy and I. And this week as every week, we remember Klaus and know that he joins us in spirit! Join us and the many people from all over the world who share theirs with us each week! 

We've had a little of all of it this week -- didn't like what you saw? just wait an hour or so! Wild and crazy, but beautiful as always!

Enrique G.A. said...

All that the man feels deeply or clearly imagine is imprinted in the subconscious and manifests itself in the smallest details, such as in those clouds, in those colors that cover those skies .....
Beautiful series of photos, with a heaven for everyone.
greetings.

What Can I Say?

What Can I Say?
I'm interested in almost everything. Use to like to travel, but it's too expensive now. I take Tai Chi classes, swim, volunteer in a Jump-start program for pre-schoolers. I'm an avid reader and like nearly everyone these days I follow politics avidly. I'm a former teacher and Special Projects Coordinator for a Telecommunications company, Assistant to the President of a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturing company. Am now enjoying retirement -- most of the time. I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two sons scattered all over the country. No grandchildren.
